Village News 
for the week of December 4, 2017
 
Bulk Leaf Pickup Continues Until December 15. . .
. . .or until the first major snowfall.   It is requested that you fill your green yard waste cans first;  the extra leaves can then be kept on your parkway.  You can also mulch your leaves, which is actually very beneficial for your lawn.    The EP Water Department requests that all residents please try to keep sewer covers free of debris, which prevents the street from flooding.   The trucks generally try to hit your area on the day after your garbage pickup;  but please know they are out and about at all times trying to keep up.

Online Payment Service Now Available on Water Bills
You can now pay your water bill online, either in full. . or better yet, with smaller payments (paid any time) that can keep your balance low.  Get the details now!
